Supply security for season 2021
Looking at the recent COVID-19 developments, we unfortunately are facing again an increasing global spread of the virus. As Florensis we strictly follow the governments directions. To ensure that your ordered product will be delivered to you safely and with the highest quality standards, we gladly inform you about our taken precautions for the coming season.
COVID-19 measures for our employees
On all our production locations we took strict measures among our employees and in some cases we go even further than the country restrictions. Our staff works in shifts to avoid that too many people work on the same area (office and production), temperature is daily measured at arrival and everybody wears a face mask when the 1.5 m distance cannot be secured.
Mother stock locations and cargo
At our cutting production locations in Europe and Africa we have very experienced management to steer the operation in the best way and we have strict measures put in place. Our mother plants production for the coming season is going on as usual and according to planning. Both Ethiopia and Kenya have a strong position with cargo flights and strong connections to Europe. It is not expected that this will change the coming winter and effect our airfreight cargo. Apart from this, our EU transport is arranged by trucks, which has not given us any problems either.
Young plant production and logistics
Our production of young plants is spread over 5 locations in The Netherlands, with its own team in cultivation and logistics. Thanks to our expansion in sticking robots, we can properly absorb fluctuations in supply and in case of less employees, within set lead times. In the entire production process, from sowing/cuttings sticking to delivery of your product, all possible measures have been taken to prevent our employees from becoming infected with the virus. With the experience from the corona peak in spring, we foresee for the coming season no problems in our logistics to transport the young plants to you.
Sales service and online convenience
Our sales representatives are doing everything they can to support you personally. In case of possible new visiting restrictions in countries our complete sales team is at your disposal via telephone and e-mail.
Next to this the Florensis webshop is a solution for many of our customers in this difficult period with less personal contact. You can use our online tool 24/7 to see your order overviews and order for the coming season. Do you already know the benefits?

With these measures we do our utmost to secure our supply to you regardless of what the corona developments will be. We thank you for your commitment and look forward to a strong 2021 season.
